Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers have been at a standoff all season. Simmons has not suited up for a single game for the team. Ben says he isn’t comfortable with the Sixers’ medical staff. The franchise has spent all season trying to find a solution.
76ers supporters know that Ben Simmons is likely done with the team. They’re growing impatient as every day he isn’t dealt is another day without potential useful pieces that could come via trade. Charles Barkley recently had some choice words for his former team as he spoke to TMZ Sports about the situation.
“He’s never going to play another game in Philly. The fans won’t forgive him.
“They have to make a trade. You have to move on from a bad relationship. They’re not using him and Joel Embiid has been playing great this year, so they’re wasting his talents.”
The Philadelphia 76ers are currently 25-18. That’s good enough for the sixth seed in the playoffs out of the Eastern Conference. Fans of the team are wondering how much better they could be if the front office could figure out a way to get a return on Ben Simmons. Charles Barkley agrees.
